E

Haplotype

E46

Map

E

Casper Wildersnoot’s Haplogroup

Haplogroup E is a very rare maternal line, present primarily in Northern breed dogs and dogs with some level of recent gray wolf ancestry.

E46

Casper Wildersnoot’s Haplotype

Part of the E haplogroup, the E46 haplotype occurs most commonly in Gray Wolves. It's a rare find!

Through Casper Wildersnoot’s Y-chromosome we can trace his father’s ancestry back to where dogs and people first became friends. This map helps you visualize the routes that his ancestors took to your home. Their story is described below the map.

Haplogroup

B1

Haplotype

B1.2

Map

B1

Casper Wildersnoot’s Haplogroup

This is a lineage that is found infrequently in dogs and may only be found in gray wolves and dogs with recent wolf ancestors. It is very different from all known dog lineages indicating a long time between the most recent common ancestor of canids in this lineage and domestic dogs.

B1.2

Casper Wildersnoot’s Haplotype

This haplotype has been spotted in wolves and dogs with wolf ancestry. Not only is that pretty neat, but it also helps move science forward.
